I am weak. That's how I got to this place, being overweight I mean. I am proud of the weightloss success I've had so far and I love NS. I have been needing a hysterectomy for a few years now, I've been putting it off. I am still young and not 100% sure I'm done having kids. So due to my problems, once a month I get weak physically as well as emotionally.

Again I just don't know if I am done having kids. So this month was worse than others. I gave into temptation pretty bad for the whole week. Fast food, ice cream, chocolate, fat & calories like crazy. It was great going down, but today (yes it took 5 full days before I felt any form of guilt.) I haven't weighed so I don't know for sure how much I've gained but I'm getting back on the program today.

It's amazing how easy it is to go back to our old habits when we are having a weak moment. Wish me luck and if any of you have had similar stories, please share. I need all the motivation I can get, because right now I don't feel like getting on the right track...

Your question was: Motivation to get back on Nutrisystem plan?.

Hi, I had a hysterectomy at 45 (complete ovaries and all) and I wish I had tried other options first. The doctor at the time made it sound like the answer to my problems. I felt like I was bleeding to death and constantly emotional and severe cramps. Afterwards though I put on alot of weight and was even more emotional (early menopause sets in which the doc forgot to mention). Then I also had to take hormone supplements for 9 years which the oncologist hinted gave me the early stage breast cancer last year. Make sure the doctor has exhausted all other options first.

She had breast cancer and could not undergo the surgery at the time. If I had it to do over I would make sure all other avenues had been tried or at least gone for a partial hysterectomy only. I don't know your medical problems but I hope this helps a little. The good side is it did cure my cramps and excessive bleeding...

Im proud of you for coming here to vent. It will help you stay more accountable in the future. The "venting" must have relieved some stress you had bottled up...we all know how stress is not good for weight loss!.

You have identified what is triggering the emotional eatingwhich is more than half the battle. Now it is time to do something about it..

Plan for success. Create new habits..

What are you going to do differently next time?.

...Post before you go off plan? Call a friend? Go for a walk? Drink water? Read the Mindset Makeover?.

You have three beautiful babies who are at an impressionable age. They look to Mom as a role model/hero. See yourself for who you really are&Healthy Mom.

You are sooo much stronger than you give yourself credit..

Healthy Mom: You want this, You can do it, You WILL do it!.

(by focusing on one meal/snack at a time)..

Thanks Cat4shore for the graffics!!! I feel better today, more motivated by your responses. I did weigh in this morning and gained, but not as much as I thought. So I am ready to loose that weigh and then some!.

Next time I feel like this I will def. post on here before binging.

As for the hysterectomy I am going to continue to put it off. I am sooo young (only 31) and still don't know if I am done having kids. The biggest reason is that I'm not sure I am done. I don't feel done. I've heard so many people say that they knew that they weren't having anymore kids.... I don't feel that at all.

This month was worse than the others but not as bad as they have been. I was given other options but for personal reasons, they aren't options for me. One is an ablasion (no clue how to spell that) but my doc was very honest and said I would still need to take a form of birth control because while I would never be able to have another baby, I could still get pregnant, I would just miscarry by around 13 weeks. I have had one miscarriage so this is not an option for me at all. Another is an IUD which may or may not work.

However my insurance doesn't pay for the only one that would work in my case. (Not sure why one would work better than another but my docs words and since insurance won't pay I didn't ask.).

My mother had her hysterectomy in her 40s and she says this "sign" telling me I'm done having kids. She only had 2 kids (but she had 2 miscarriages as well.) I think she thinks because I have 3 then I should be more than happy with the number of kids I have. My son also has behavior problems (a very long story so I'm not getting into that) and she thinks thats all I need.

*sigh* sorry for all the details, but I feel better venting...

Happy to hear that you are feeling better today and have a plan in place to prevent derailing. You go girl!..

I had a hysterectomy after the birth of my second child. I am very glad I did. I was hemorrhaging each month. I was alive to care for my kids. I also had a friend who put off getting her surgery and she had to have blood transfusions before it was safe for her to have the surgery. Please be very careful.

However, I am more concerned about the quality of your life and the stamina to care for the children you have...
